The Stanley show has a couple of seeders. Couldn't get anyone to seed the 9/28, though:

The 12/31/81 show at Oakland includes acoustic set by Joan Baez and looks like a pretty good Dead set list:. I'll jump on later:

I would highly recommend getting the 12-31-81 show, four sets with a semi accoustic set with Joan to start it off. Set 2 features, among others, Big Boss Man and one of the truly great Shakedown's. The 3rd set and the new year, kicks off with the famous Ken Kesey "Gong Bong" into a rockin Aiko followed by a Playin> Terrapin sandwich and an epic post drums (Other One> NFA> GDTRFB> DEW). Of course the highlight is the breakout of Dark Star in set 4, a really tight 14 minute version , the first in almost 3 years. It is quite unique for the era and is my personal favorite show of the Brent/Vince era, Joan's harmonies on Roses and Baby Blue notwithstanding.

I go back a ways with both of these, well not as far back as some of you of course. 9/27/72 was one of my first tapes I got that blew me away and stood out as being unique from everything else I had heard up until then. Before that it was 5-8-77 and Fillmore 69, you know the USUAL first tapes. Anways listening to that Other1-Bobby Mcgee was a real eye opener to the world of Grateful Dead. 12-31-81 was one of the first true " crisp" sounding SBDS I ever got. It was the first time I REALLY heard Bob's invaluable contribution to Shakedown. Can anyone really argue it's his funky riff that defines this song?

Cranky...I believe you're the one who pm'd me to seed 9/27. I sent you a message at shnflac asking which 9/28 you want. Once you jump on it let me know and I'll seed it.

Yes Sparky, I'm the cranky one, or so my wife says. I'm on it now. gd72-09-27.sbd.vernon.18106.sbeok.shn, if this is the one we were chatting about. Small world...let me just take a moment to go off about the overall good nature of all the folks here in Dead land. Makes my day!

No...I wasn't completely clear. I'm the one seeding 9/27/72 and I was asking which 9/28 you were on so that I could hop on. I'll go hop on the 9/28 right now. If there's anything else just pm me at shnflac.

Okay, if that's a pik outside or near your house, i'm envious, even if i do prefer living in industrial wastelands and cement gardens.

Here's one my friend Radim e-mailed me after a day of hiking outside of Calgary. It's my desktop background at work. It makes me think, what the hell am i doing in Providence.

Dire, but glad you liked it. And about Attleboro, at least you can always say it's not Pawtucket! Now there's a dumping ground if ever there was one.
